Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bennet may not have the executive experience that Joe Biden, Steve Bullock, John Hickenlooper, Jay Inslee, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, and Pete Buttigieg have.

They may not have the rhetorical gifts and passionate delivery styles that Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Beto O’ Rourke possesses.

They may not have the treasure chest of policy proposals Elizabeth Warren has.

They may not have the devoted followers of Bernie Sanders.

They may not have the financial resources Tom Steyer or the other Democrats who had a very successful fundraising quarter.

What they both have are strong and steady pragmatic progressive records with solid legislative experience with steady and middle of the road temperments that most voters can relate to.

In essence, they are, if you watched the final episode of Game of Thrones a couple of months back, the Bran Starks of the race, candidates, that if elected, would offer a reassuring, comforting, and calming influence over the country after a prolonged chaotic period.

Klobuchar and Bennet are candidates that are not politically or temperamentally extreme.

Both are committed to good government and public service. They are both experienced legislators with proven progressive records. They have both outlined progressive visions should they win the Presidency that would move the country forward.

Finally, both would provide the nation a sorely needed breath of refreshing air after the turmoils of the current Administration.

While the other leading Presidential candidates (Biden, Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, Booker, and Castro) will undoubtedly (unfortunately) receive the majority of the questions this coming week on CNN, Senators Klobuchar and Bennet, like the Governors and  some of the other candidates running, should receive additional consideration because they also have demonstrated that they could be viable Presidential candidates as well.

Among the speakers at the school's graduations were noted figures in Arizona Politics like Harry Mitchell, David Schweikert, Juan Mendes, Andrew Sherwood, and John Huppenthal. Mr. Gordon also participated in the revisions of the Arizona History and Social Studies standards. In January 2017, Mr. Gordon started the political blog Twenty-First Century Progressive Bull Moose. It has a global following and routinely comments on the political events of the day. Mr. Gordon also helps administer the Facebook page Living Blue in Arizona. He is also currently writing a series of Young Adult science fiction novels which incorporate the themes of time travel and its impact on history. Mr. Gordon is very happy to be asked to join the Blog for Arizona team and hopes to spread the progressive word to make Arizona a better place for everyone.
